been trying to have a campaign that was structured around the idea that barack obama was a nice guy, a good fellow, a good dad and an all-around swell american but that mitt romney thought that he could probably do a better job being president and manager of the economy than he could because they were very worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking ab

. this will give president obama another option. we already know unmanned drones flew over libya looking for intelligence on who may have been responsible for the attacks on benghazi, looking at al qaeda-related militant groups, where they are located, where are the encampment, the strongholds? they will gather the intelligence. and two options on the table. libyan forces could try to go after some of these targets once they're identified, or possibly now, the president has the option. he could order those ships to fire their tomahawk missiles against those targets. the president said, justice will be done. now some of the options being put into place. john? >> so barbara, drones are looking for them, possible special forces action if we find them or tomahawk missiles. do you have a sense of any time frame here? >> reporter: we believe, you know, the first ship probably already, frankly, within range of any target, the libyan coast. we know that it was very close by in port in the mediterranean. second ship should be there within a couple of days. no indication of u.s. boots on the groun

.last of those it was december 1, 2009, at west point, that president obama announced the surge. >> and as commander-in-chief i have determined it is in our vital national interest to send an additional 30,000 u.s. troops to afghanistan. >> reporter: at that time he also announced a schedule for their withdrawal, a goal that has now been met. 33,000 u.s. troops took part in the surge. 10,000 of them were out by july of last year. and the remaining 23,000 are now gone. but in his statement, the defense secretary had a sobering reminder saying, "it is important to underscore that even as our surge troops return home, there are roughly 68,000 americans who remain in a tough fight in afghanistan, alongside their nato and afghan partners. we are a nation at war." the human toll of the surge was tremendous. of the almost 2,000 u.s. casualties in afghanistan, 57% happened during the surge. now those who remain face the die-hard insurgents and the growing threat of insider attacks. the deadline to bring the final american troops home is still 2014. muhammad leila, abc news, kabul. zbhoo
security forces were instrumental in beating back the protesters. president obama said today he had a message, a strong warning, for anyone who perpetrates violence against americans. >> i want people around the world to hear me to all those who do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the lights of the values we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >>jonathan: that resolve is being tested right now. >>shepard: it is. from the appearance, it appears this could get much worse. >>jonathan: you only have to look at history. we have seen so many incidents like there before. in 2006, the cartoons that were published in a danish newspaper, the protests followed that, deemed offensive to the prophet mohammed and protests spread across the globe. back in 2010, after a christian church leader in florida suggested burning copies of the koran publicly, there were protests across the muslim world. just in february, this year, remember when nato forces inadvertently burned copies of the koran? we
. we voted 32 times to repeal obamacare. obama does care more than i can say for some. we had time for voting to repeal obamacare 32 times, but didn't have any time to offer serious fixes to the economy. and i just want to mention that president obama, to his credit, has done, i think great and excellent work in offering solutions. they simply have been ignored. it's really kind of sad when you think about the fact that the president has offered real serious and important solutions to the problems of the nation and yet they really have not been seriously addressed. for example, the president called us all here and talked about the american jobs act. this is a great piece of legislation. but you know, mr. speaker, we never even had a vote on it. we never even had an opportunity to say who wants the american jobs act. it was simply something that the republican majority in the house wouldn't even address. the fact is, there were great ideas in this bill. and i want to talk about those ideas, because i think they would really do a lot of good. it includes a national infrastructure, a
? it might be early to get answers on this but it's not too early to ask the question. today president obama paid tribute to ambassador stevens. he was described as a career diplomat who cared deeply about his mission as well as the people of libya. >> especially tragic he died in ben sgl benghazi because he helped save the city in the post revolution. he was there with skill, courage and resolve he built partnerships with libyan revolutionaries and helped them as they planned to build a new libya. >> a short time ago the white house ordered flags to half staff. you can see the lowering there on top of the white house with respect of the four americans killed. foreign affairs to the front burner sadly they are political and this is an election cycle that has been dominated by domestic issues enter a real world crisis. ed henry is live at the white house. chief white house correspondent. what is your set of information on whether this attack was something random which no longer appears to be or something more targeted? >> i just spoke to a senior official they had information this was in fact
. he urged speaker boehner to abandon the grand bargain talks with president obama. "the new york times" reported in 2011, "ryan appealed to representative cantor to cut off negotiations between the speaker and the white house because he didn't feel the terms of the emerging agreement adhered strictly enough to his conservative principles and the deal might politically benefit president obama." so, it is not a secret that the ryan budget both hurts the middle class and does nothing for deficit reduction. the only people who would benefit are the very wealthy, and god bless them. they're doing well in america, but as recent statistics just showed, they're the only people gaining income. and one other thing i'd like to add about mr. ryan here: he seems like a nice man, nice family, but his recent speeches have just been so revealing, and he did the same thing yesterday once again showing he has learned nothing from the mistakes he's made in the last few weeks. when it comes to the big debates facing our country, paul ryan either has an extremely poor memory or has a tendency to play fast
over the world. so let's go back a minute. what you saw yesterday was president obama say he wants to up security at embassies around the world. right now we know for the last several hours the state department, the pentagon, the white house, the national security community, going through the security arrangements at u.s. embassies around the world. >> barbara if you can hold that thought, we're going to get back to you. we have a reporter who is live right now on the phone. hakeem al masmari. you are there. we are seeing pictures. what can you tell us. >> the security forces do not want this to escalate. as you heard again, yemen knows if blood falls on the ground this will only get worse. it has not gotten violent as of now. if it does it will only be for the worse. yemen knows if one is killed in this protest it could escalate. that is why they are using batons and wisdom in dealing with the protesters, though in the past many protests at this place were violent over last year or so. >> that's a real careful calculus they have to do here trying to control
officers. i join president obama in condemning these senseless acts of violence. my thoughts are with the families of those who were killed in this horrible attack it is too often forgotten that american diplomats risk their lives on a daily basis. madam president, when i have had the good fortune since my days in the foreign affairs committee in the house to travel the world, i always make sure wherever i go i visit with foreign service personnel. they're every place. there's no group of people, i tell them that every timist opportunity to visit with them, no one does our country more in a positive sense than these foreign service officers. they work so hard and duty stations most of the times are very, very difficult. take, for example, this good man, ambassador stevens, who was just confirmed a fuel months ago -- a few months ago, he was a peace corps volunteer, he taught english. he's fluent in arabic, french and english. he served in the foreign service in jerusalem, in cairo, saudi arabia and staff assistant to the bureau of middle eastern affairs. he had an education t
